          Recommending a Path To Carbon Neutrality at Miami University

          In January 2019, Miami University President Greg Crawford charged the Miami University Sustainability Committee to prepare a new sustainability plan. One of the 10 objectives of the charge was to consider whether Miami should sign the Presidents' Climate Leadership Commitment (PCLC, formerly American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment).

          With the input of internal and external stakeholders, the committee prepared a report, "A Commitment to Lead: A proposed, renewed vision to position Miami University as a sustainability leader among higher education institutions."

          In that report the Sustainability Committee strongly recommended that due to the overwhelming evidence that the impact of climate change requires drastic action, and that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) estimates catastrophic consequences if societies continue business as usual, the University should commit to carbon neutrality by one of two pathways:

          1. Sign the Presidents' Climate Leadership Commitment (PCLC) which provides guidance and ensures transparency.


          2. Implement our own university-based plan that is transparent and rigorous.

          President Crawford has asked the Sustainability Committee to provide additional details about these two pathways and to have their recommendations to him by early 2020.

          ♺ Recycling Tips

          Miami's recycling and solid waste reduction efforts have come a long way since becoming part of campus operations in 1989. But what can be tossed into those blue recycle bins around campus?
